I am only half way through this book, Teach Like a Champion, and I can already tell it is going to have a HUGE positive impact on my public school teaching!! I am so glad Doug Lemov listened to Norman Atkins and published these techniques. I am going to tell anyone that will listen that they need to read this book...NOW!! What I value the most are the video clips. Seeing it in action, the ability to replay it and seeing how the students respond are extremely valuable to me. Thank you, Mr. Lemov, for 5 years of investigation and dedication!

At first glance, this book seems like a dream come true - how does one truly master the art and craft of teaching - these 49 techniques should put anyone on the fast track....but unfortunately, from what I saw on the DVD, and read in the text, these techniques harken back to the stone age of education - where pupils are NOT engaged in thinking for themselves, but rather, are part of the "drill and thrill" mentality.

I would be curious to see how the students identified perform on a longitudinal scale, when asked to engage in problem solving, or critical thinking.
